Yeah, the bolster is tons better than the current one Mate. This one also has the tilt lever and surround on it as well  :smiley:

I'll take some pics of the old seat in tomorrow before I take it out so you can see the difference.

The price was good as well, only took the guy 15mins and he also got a brew out of it as well  :laugh:. just goes to show that it sometimes isn't worth trying yourself, get one of the guys on here (if they live close enough to you  :embarassed:) to give you a price. You could be pleasantly surprised  :cool:. By this guy doing it I have saved the price of the vac hire, brush and solution  :cool:

Window motor hasn't turned up today so I guess that will arrive on Monday but to be honest, I'm not looking forward to doing it  :sad: looks a bit fiddly.

That's bad news Mate  :cry: Shame to lose another Corrado.

Those Blackberry corrado's are a really nice colour  :cool: and the VR6 noise  :cool: :cool:. Would have gone for one mesen if I wasn't such a tight arse and refuse to give Mr. Brown all me hard earned in fuel tax  :laugh:


At least you're keeping one of those nice motors you have Mate, I really like that black motor of yours  :cool:

It is Mate thanks, but that, to me is the whole point of having one  :smiley:

Every week, probably nothing to anyone else, I find something that I need to do to it. Sometimes it pi$$es me off but I leave it for a while, go back a while later and sort it. At that point all is well again  :laugh: :laugh:

Get yersen the VR6 and stick a LPG conversion in it and happy days  :cool: :laugh: :laugh:

Still not sorted the feckin' wheel refurb  :angry: :angry: :embarassed:

Well, this morning has seen the new drivers seat in it  :cool:

I took this one out.........




And put this one in........





Anyone want a free Corrado drivers seat, good condition apart from needing new foam in it  :laugh: :laugh:

OK, I'll wait for the skip man next week  :embarassed:

Like you're sat in a different motor Mate  :cool:

As usual, the Corrado gremlins struck again :angry:.....it seems that every time I sort summat, another thing rears it's ugly head  :angry:.

This time it was a fuse holder in the alarm system wiring that had decided to break internally and fugged up the central locking. Just a 5 minute fix but about an hour finding the fecker  :laugh: :laugh:

In all seriousness I'd be confident someone will buy that.

Corrado seats are the lowest of the low, so it may be someone will re-trim it and give it a whole 'nother life.
Just because you're offended doesn't make you right.
